COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

KW92 (1129) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 16, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zamglone. Piana wysoka, drobna, trwała.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Bardzo owocowy...malinowy zapach. Malinowa herbatka, a właściwie powinienem napisać: "Krüger Herbatynka Malinowa", tak to pachnie, co nie znaczy, że to jakis minus, po prostu czuć ją na kilometr. W tle granat, czerwona porzeczka i może mirabelka.
SMAK: Słodowe, gorzka zielona herbata Ponownie garbnikowy, ściągającym, gorzki smak. Tak więc goryczka wysoka, długa.
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo "oryginalne" piwo. Dla mnie rewelacja.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 Mooie donkere kleur maar weinig schuim. Mooie hopsmaak. Bier uit Japan bevalt me erg goed.

kaser (5502) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Cloudy orange pour from 12oz bottle at HOB in Bangkok. White head. Musty grapefruit and peach flavors. Underwhelming but defiantly drinkable.

(Baird Teikoku IPA) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a big tulip, ABV 6.5% Dark orange colour on the body, hazy, with a small off-white head on top, thin with average retention. Aroma of light citrus, oranges, tangerine. Taste also of light citrus, grapefruit, oranges, light tangerine, lemon flowers, some cookie dough. Medium body, good carbonation. Pretty good.

ciocanelu (1073) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 8, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Hazy orange color with beige head. Faint hoppy aroma with orange and tangerine notes. Taste starts with an intense nutty, biscuit malt note and some hops follow and continue into the aftertaste and linger with medium bitterness. Body is quite heavy, smooth and has a good carbonation for the style. Really interesting take on an IPA, I just wish it was fresher.

Benzai (12776) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle @ home. Hazy to murky orange brown color, full sized a bit rough off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, hops, lightly fruit hops but also a hint of tea. The flavor has it as well, not sure whether it’s tea actually but something slightly weird I can’t put my finger on exactly. Malts, hops, a touch of tea, a touch of orangepeel, malt bitter and a slight hint of fruit hop bitter. Decent body and carbonation. A bit weird imo.

olsvammel (5722) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2015
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2015. Hoppy smell with caramel and some citrus. Similar taste. Light-medium bitterness. A light IPA.
